Homer 33C teachers complete fourth and final webinar for 2015-16

Teachers became students once again on March 15, gathering at their respective schools to reflect on the planning and preparation they put into lesson plans and how they can take it to the next level.

 

Consultants Gayle Wahlin and Stephan Bild from the DuPage Regional Office of Education led the day-long webinar, reviewing Charlotte Danielson’s Framework for Teaching.

 

The goal is to improve student learning through improved teaching and leadership.

 

Teachers worked in small groups as Wahlin and Bild guided them through a series of exercises. In the afternoon, they discussed ways to enhance their lesson plans

 

The day-long training session was conducted via virtual classrooms, enabling teachers from all six Homer 33C schools to benefit from the same instruction simultaneously.

 

It was the fourth and final webinar to be conducted this school year.

 

“As a district, our staff is focused on developing a shared understanding of what exceptional instruction looks like in the classroom,” said Kathleen Robinson, Assistant Superintendent for Instruction. “Charlotte Danielson provides us with a research-based, conceptual framework from which we have launched our year-long professional development.”
